Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    The vendor worked in the Dan Evans department store in Barry and on a half-day closing decided to go to Roath Park in Cardiff for a rowing session on the lake there. It was Wednesday 26th April, 1967. As he was at the landing quay before returning to his car, three men approached to book a boat and he recognised one of them as Jimi. The vendor chatted to Jimi and asked for an autograph; the only thing the vendor had on him was this piece of card. The Experience appeared that evening at Cardiff's Capitol Theatre, as part of the tour with the Walker Brothers. Legend has it that Jimi and others returned to the park that night, crossed to one of the islands in the lake and spent the night there. A blue plaque commemorating this has been erected by the lakeside.
